High Point Market - Announces Design Bloggers Tour for Fall Market 2017

High Point, NC, June 5, 2017 – The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) is pleased to announce that it has partnered again with Esteem Media to develop a Design Bloggers Tour for the 2017 Fall Market, October 14 – 18, and is now accepting submissions from bloggers and social media influencers interested in being considered for the tour and sponsorship inquiries from interested exhibitors.

The High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour will bring a group of ten (10) leading design bloggers to High Point Market for 2 full days of tours in sponsoring showrooms. Participating bloggers will visit each sponsor for an up-close look at the exhibitors’ company, showroom and products during a 45 minute presentation and tour. The tour will kick off on Sunday, October 15, and conclude on Monday, October 16.

Esteem Media, founded by Adam Japko, produces the highly successful Design Bloggers Conference (www.design-bloggers-conference.com) each year. “This will be our 5th tour, and it just keeps getting better each time,” commented Japko. “This unique project is a natural extension of our Design Bloggers Conference project, designed to promote quality online design content and community building. It’s a thrilling program which benefits all involved, with both participating bloggers and exhibitors receiving great exposure.”

"I have been coming to High Point Market for 15 years but my experience this year, as part of the Design Bloggers Tour, was unique and enlightening. With each showroom visit, we were able to spend uninterrupted time with the collections' designers and truly get an insider's view of the inspirational story behind the product,” commented Jana Platina Phipps of the Trim Queen blog, a member of the Spring 2017 tour. “This was truly an enriching experience for me both personally and professionally, and I am grateful to the sponsors of the tour. Judging from the content shared from my blog and social media channels, I would say it was valuable to the sponsors as well.”

Submissions are now being accepted from design bloggers and social media influencers interested in being considered. The form will be available at www.highpointmarket.org/event/design-blogger-tour until Monday, July 10.
